Dry skin is when your skin dries out because it doesn’t have enough moisture. It isn’t usually serious, but it can be irritating.
Dry skin is caused by environmental factors that remove moisture from the skin. Heat, hot showers, arid climates, and harsh soaps can all trigger dry skin.
Below is a beauty guide for brides with dry skin.
Antioxidizes and omega-3s: There are some foods that can help your skin appear healthier and moisturised. Some of the foods that contribute to skin health include blueberries, tomatoes, carrots and beans.
Skip the Hot Shower: Many brides enjoy a steaming hot shower. Your skin however will disagree. Super hot water dries it out. Start taking lukewarm showers.
Moisturise While Damp: When doing your moisturising routine, do it when you’re fresh from the shower or bath. Lotions are designed to lock in moisture. It will be easier by using them when your skin is at its most moist.
Only wash your face once per day: Switch to one wash at night so you don’t dry out your skin. Use a gentler cleansing oil or micellar water cleanser, which are less likely to contain the harsh surfactants that can dehydrate skin.
Oatmeal bath: Colloidal oatmeal baths can help relieve the dry, itchy and irritated skin. It soothes and moisturises the skin deeply.
Petroleum Jelly: Petroleum jelly covers the skin in a protective layer. It traps moisture underneath. This helps heal dry skin.
